When I talk to friends about what a 3D printer is worth, always ask me about the uses that can be given. And my answer is usually that 3D printers are used to solve problems. Problems that can that already you have, such as breakage of a piece or an object, or others that you didn’t even know you had.
Thingiverse is this week as featured object this LED lamp which you can manufacture yourself if you have a 3D printer and an LED Strip. And the problem solving is to provide uniform illumination a worktable and without shadows. Good idea, really?
If you were thinking about how it is made, we will obviously print arch and 3D separate printer supports. Parts can be glued together with acetone, What we will have just put the strip of led lights at the bottom.
The design is not too bad. To my reminds me of the typical arches of buildings such as the Eiffel Tower and despite being a modern lamp, gives a touch of work tables. Its creator, OPOSSUMS, has designed it to avoid shadows when welding components and is inspired by art deco. He was also seeking information on the internet about Roman arches for the design of the structure.
OPOSSUMS are already thinking about how improve the model. The possibilities that is considering include the installation of sensors of proximity in each segment, in such a way that you can turn on only some sections of the Strip LED as well as three potentiometers to adjust the RGB components of the lights.
The cost of printing is not expensive, and the LED strip can be found pretty cheap, so for very little money we have a useful lamp and that also gives a uniform illumination.
